Mayflower Society House
Across the street and around the corner from Plymouth Rock, in the heart of this quaint village’s historic district, is the Mayflower Society House. The grounds host the historic eighteenth century dwelling built by Edward Winslow. Behind this stately mansion are the offices and library of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. The property overlooks a snug harbor where a reproduction of the blessed ship, The Mayflower, is moored (away for repairs until 2020). Cole’s Hill, the final resting place of many of the Pilgrims, may also be seen.
Stop by to take a guided tour of the House, explore the beautiful garden, and visit our library. We would enjoy meeting you, telling you more about our organization and the history of this celebrated site. This 18th century mansion overlooking Plymouth harbor has ten rooms, three centuries of furnishings and artifacts. Nominal admission. Group rates arranged.
